Darfur policy is now under review in the Obama Administration. Two
key figures are Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Ambassador to
the UN Susan Rice. To try to influence this review, we have produced
a 191-page document and sent hard copies to Clinton, Rice, Senator
Feingold (WI), Congressman Hinchey (NY), among others.
Below are links to an inventory of four container-loads of medical
equipment that has now arrived in the port of Mombasa, Kenya, en
route to Juba, capital of South Sudan. The equipment was assembled
from Canadian donors: medical and dental practitioners, hospitals,
and other citizens. The project to arrange for the shipment and
raise money for the $40,000 cost of shipping the equipment was
organized and directed by Ottawa resident Justin Laku, founder and
president of Canadian Friends of Sudan and a collaborator on Darfur
projects, since 2004, with the Darfur Action Group-Cornell.

This report, based on research in unclassified written sources as
well as interviews with fourteen high-ranking military and civilian
experts, assesses the possible contributions of a no-fly zone to the
resolution of the Darfur question. It discusses three possible
functions of these zones and considers six possible missions, which
could make use of these functions. The impact upon mission choice of
UNSC Resolution 1769, the effectiveness of which is critically
analyzed, also receives attention.
A message of support and of warning.
Reports on 6 and 7 December indicate that janjaweed militias are massing for large-scale attacks on El Fashir, capital of North Darfur. Units of 1000+ personnel have been observed in coordinated actions.

The Challenge: Unless this plan or a more robust one is
implemented quickly, the surviving victims of the Darfur genocide
will remain indefinitely in an archipelago of destitute camps spread
across the region. A population of 2.5 million, driven from well
over one thousand completely destroyed villages, lingers in disease,
starvation, fears confirmed by daily violence, and hopes abridged by
the now accelerating departure of international aid organizations.

Op-Ed by Camdzic, Weiss
Frustrated at the inability of American policies to stop the
killings, rapes, and forced starvation in the Darfur region of
western Sudan, a group of American human rights activists decided to
appeal to the Canadian government to lead the international
community’s efforts to end the atrocities. Departing from the city
of Ithaca, in central New York State, the group traveled by
bicycle to the Canadian capital of Ottawa, taking a
600-mile route around Lake Ontario that included stops in
Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Hamilton, and
The journey began on July 11th, the tenth anniversary of the
Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia, and ended on August 7th with
the presentation of a petition to the
Canadian Parliament in Ottawa.

To assist with the work of the Darfur Action Group:
Checks payable to Darfur Action Group - Cornell
This money will NOT go to pay for humanitarian work in Darfur:
- Humanitarian organizations are being forced out of most of Darfur and cannot deliver the aid they already have paid for.
- They will only be able to operate if some version of the Three-Part Plan is implemented.
- Many of the Sudanese Govt humanitarian organizations are staffed by operatives of Salah Abdallah Gosh, the Heinrich Himmler of the genocide.
- Your money and implied support of Humanitarian Policies will only encourage the bravest and most self-sacrificing humanitarian workers in the international organizations, who are still there, and who are 90 per cent Sudanese,to stay on and run a great risk of becoming not aidworkers but martyrs. That is, they will be killed, as is already happening, of course.
The Darfur Action Group -Cornell is NOT (yet) a 501.c.3 organizations. Donations will not, at present, be tax-deductible.
